Henry Lee Lucas was convicted of the murders of 11 people, although he confessed to hundreds.  Lucas died in prison from hart failure on March 12, 2011 at the age of 64.  Lucas’s grave is apparently currently unmarked due to vandalism and theft.  It is located at:

Ottis Toole was Henry Lee Lucas’s bff and partner in crime.  He was convicted of 6 counts of murder.  Toole died in prison on September 15, 1996, at the age of 49 from cirrhosis. As his body went unclaimed, he was buried in the Florida State Prison Cemetery in Raiford, Fl.

Ed Gein confessed to killing two women and was initially found unfit for trial, but eventually he was found guilty of one of the murders, but legally insane.  He died in a mental health institution from respiratory/heart failure due to cancer on  July 26,1984.  Gein’s gravestone was stolen by some asshole in 2000.  The gravestone was replaced with a makeshift grave marker, which was also stolen.   Sadly, there is now only an empty plot, but easily located as it is between his brother Henry and his mother Augusta’s gravestones. (Right now there is yet another handmade grave marker, but who knows how long that will be up).

It’s a very Greek idea, and a very profound one. Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it. And what could be more terrifying and beautiful, to souls like the Greeks or our own, than to lose control completely? To throw off the chains of being for an instant, to shatter the accident of our mortal selves?
